Whether it’s more copies of existing books, a book you’ve found that we don’t have or a new book that’s just been published, let us know using the form below and we will try and buy it.

Currently we are prioritising purchase requests for teaching and learning in preparation for the academic teaching year.

We will retain the details of your request and review it in due course.
